Dear Blogger,

I haven't been true to one of my goals. That is, to update my blog at least once a week. I have been awfully busy. There were times when I wanted to sit down in front of my laptop and blog away. Why I never did, I don't know.

Anyway, since the start of February, I have been diligently going to the neighbourhood women-only gym. I spend an average of 1.5 hours, 4 times a week doing circuit training and muscle exercises.

It is not cheap so that's why I forced myself to work out at least 4 times a week. Still, if you compare across the board, this membership is still more affordable than others. Besides being a women-only gym, it doesn't glamourise itself by having only beautiful bodies working out. So it feels like a working-class gym than a posh "look at me" gym.

I know I am getting my money's worth because personal trainers are included. In my past gym experience, members were usually left alone to work on the machines. I didn't even know if I was working the machines right! More often than not, I ended up with injuries than actual results.

After 2 weeks working my butt off at the gym, I am not sure if I have achieved any desirable results at all. I weigh myself on the scale every morning. Besides the usual 1 to 2kg fluctuation, nothing much has changed. I was told not to trust the scale too much.

Maybe my body is changing and that I am just not noticing it. It happens you know. It would be great to see results because that would be added motivation. Working away without any good results in sight is really quite depressing. I guess that is what perseverance meant.
